M5 junction 8 roundabout resurfacing

Information received from Highways England:

I’m writing to inform you of some upcoming maintenance works on the M5 junction 8 roundabout, including the northbound and southbound exit slips. This work will be carried out by our contractor, Kier, on our behalf.

What we’re doing and why? What are the benefits?

We’ll be resurfacing the M5 junction 8 roundabout, including the southbound exit slip, and a small section of the northbound exit slip. The work has been identified following the deterioration of the carriageway. We’ll also be replacing the road markings and road studs. The completed work will provide a smoother surface and safer road, including clearer road markings.

When will this work take place?

We’ll work from 4 May 2021 to 10 May 2021, Monday to Friday Our work will be carried out overnight when traffic counts are lower between 8pm and 6am. To reduce disruption to customers, the work will be delivered in phases as follows;

Phase 1, Tuesday 4 May and Wednesday 5 May– Full closure of the M5 junction 8 northbound exit slip, and the western side of the roundabout.

Phase 2, Thursday 6 May, Friday 7 May and Monday 10 May– Full closure of the M5 junction 8 southbound exit slip, and the eastern side of the roundabout, including Roadchef Strensham Services M5 Southbound only.

What does this mean for you
